My physical condition had detriorated rapidly over the last 18 months. Being very fit for eighty years of my life, I was puzzled that my body has lost strength so quickly and am unable to continue cycling (my main hobby), as before.
I had thought that the detrioration of muscles ect. would have been a slower process and that I would enjoy several more cycling years to come. I live in a hilly part of Derbyshire and the visits to the Jordanthorpe Health Centre has made me realise that my physical slowing down is normal for a man of my age but in fact I am still fitter than most. I am also subject to "Old man's problems" which don't help but a series of exercises shown to me and the advice given to me will enable me to continue living a fairly active life for the foreseeable future.
